Three Women And Three Old Men
‘Three women and the three old men’ is a story of three women’s journey to climb three of Scotland’s remote sea stacks in just three days to raise money for a local charity who provide opportunities for disadvantaged youths in climbing.
This film showcases exactly what the Women’s Adventure Film Tour is all about – real people, enjoying real adventure.
It was Winner of the Best Film award at the BMC Women In Adventure film competition 2017 and featured at the Cradle Mountain Film Festival 2018.
Situated along Scotland’s wild North West coast, the sea stacks are remote and difficult to access. The challenge of climbing all 3 in 3 consecutive days will provide an exhausting challenge unequalled in Scottish climbing history. Between the 3 stacks they will attempt to climb a total of 240 meters of rock over 12 pitches of up to grade E1 5b. They will also have to overcome the challenging approaches to the pinnacles by means of scrambling, swimming and tyrolean traverse (similar to a zip wire). Travelling between the 3 remote areas they will cover a distance of 200 miles, including 2 ferry crossings.
